Morning Offering for intention of Priests

Morning Offering for intention of Priests

Holy Blessed Trinity,
I offer You all my prayers,
Works, joys and sufferings,
Of this day. No matter what
little thing I do, I offer it to
You In reparation:
# For holy priests
# For the conversion of priests
# For more priests
# For the return of many priests
# Who have left the priesthood
# For the priests still in purgatory
# Especially those most in need.

I offer myself this day (optional:
And hereafter until my death)
As an offering for holy priests.
In union with the suffering,
Death and resurrection of Jesus.
And in union with the Sacred
Body And Blood of Jesus
Consecrated daily on all the
Altars of the world by Your
Holy priests.
I make this offering freely,
Trusting that You will take care
Of all my needs, spiritual and
Temporal, for the state in life
To which You have called me.

I make this offering through
The Immaculate Hands and
Heart of the Blessed Virgin
Mary, Mother of Divine Love,
That She might take this
Imperfect prayer and
Present it to Her Son,
That through His Sacred Heart,
He might perfect it,
And present it to Our Father
By the Power of The Holy Spirit.
Through Jesus Christ Our Lord.

(With ecclesiastical approbation.)

Happy First Friday!


Happy First Friday!

I was offline for Lent and ENJOYED IT! Who knew?!

It was wonderful to be cut off from the "online" world...such freedom! LOL It really was a great experience that I did not expect.

It took away most of my desire to be online...blogging, twittering, facebook, seemed more like a chore after Lent's fast. Although I use my online time for Catholic evangelism and it never "took away" from my priorities, it did take time and energy and effort that I didn't fully comprehend until after-the-fact! So, all in all, it was a great Lent and I did change from it. ;)

I will blog when I can, but not w/ obligation. My first obligation will be (after my normal obligations such as wife and mother,etc.) prayer. Deep unity prayer from the heart in silence...not rushed or "obligatory" prayer. That time needed for this was realized by giving up all online activity. It was really wonderful ;). I am spoiled now and not about to give it up. Lent was very fruitful. My prayer life, which I thought was good, is even better.

Lent ended with a wonderful Easter and wonderful Divine Mercy Sunday after that. We had my son's confirmation at 3pm on DM Sunday! Just fantastic stuff!

Ok...wanted to check in and see how your Lent went and to say I'll post here but it will not be daily.

God speed!
